1. Masterless Samurai traditional japanese<BR><BR>
2. from a type of KULT members, the modern equivelent - a soldier who fights for causes felt honourable - without any in command of tse. A collection of Ronin are dangerous in that their ideals are persued until you kill/take down every last one of them, compared to a modern/postmodern military in that if you take a command structure down, the army falls apart. since there is no command structure, each ronin attempts to use their respective resources to accomplish whatever is desired. bound by the ronin bushido, a document sworn to by old school KULT ronins

A dishonoured or masterless samari forced to wander around feudal Japan doing mercenary work. Basically a badass swinging a sword around killing any fucker who gets in his way.

Rō-nin or rou-nin. lit. "wave man"

Ronin means a samurai who has no masters or has lost his master. No longer has a clear course and is carried by wherever the waves take him.
Miyamoto Musashi is probably the most famous Ronin known.

In modern world it can be referred to various things:
1. A freelance worker
2. A spy who's been disavowed by government
3. Husbands who've been thrown out of the house by their wives
4. A pretty good movie with Robert De Niro, Sean Bean and Jean Reno.
Seriously go see Ronin. It's an awesome movie.

A male who, because of his Asian back ground, is probably Metro and may or may not dress like the Japanese Raver kids. (see "Fruits" magazine.)

Ronin often carries a manpurse, although he'll probably refer to it as a "European carry-all". Ronin probably has a fondness for house music, Russian girls, Strippers, Russian Strippers and Sushi.

It would be unwise to taunt someone named, "Ronin". Because of his oddball name, he was probably forced into taking Karate, Judo, or Jui-Jitsu in order to keep from getting his a$$ kicked on a bi-weekly basis. ....Actually, this is true of anyone with an unusual name.

This person is also a demon in the sack.
That Russian Stripper wouldn't talk to Ronin because he was carrying a manpurse.
